Now this was an amazing wedding! Sarah & Paul had so much planned into their July wedding and my did they pull it off.
After Sarah got ready at her family home between Herne Hill and East Dulwich they had their ceremony in the magnificent St Barnabas Church. This church nestled between East Dulwich and Dulwich village is quite something. Beautiful light streams in through the windows and the space is vast with plenty of room for a wedding photographer like myself to get around but still be discreet. Their ceremony was beautiful and personal with some lovely readings followed by drinks and canapés outside in the summer sunshine.
The meal and speeches were held in the Village hall 2 minutes down the road. Sarah's family have a strong connection to this church and the community so it made perfect sense. The decorations were that of a wonderful summer village wedding and that was very much the atmosphere despite us being in South East London. I have been spoilt with wonderful speeches this summer and this was no exception. Sarah's dad, Paul, Sarah and Paul's brother as best man all gave heartfelt and entertaining speeches.
The next stage of their day started on one of the gorgeous old red London Bus's with a trip to one of the Thames piers to board the Golden Jubilee for several hours of seriously fun partying! I have honestly never seen so many guests up and dancing before at a wedding! Oh and the views of the city as the boat travelled down the Thames were incredible! i got some of my favourite ever sunset photos!
"Ami recently photographed our wedding. We would highly recommend her! One of the reasons we chose her is that we saw from examples of her work on her website that she was really skilled at capturing evening images. She was able to capture clear images of people on the dancefloor without losing the atmosphere by using loads of flash, as other photographers sometimes do. Ami was with us all day from 8am at the hairdresser right down until we left the wedding at midnight! She was fabulous all day - she was professional and really helpful and captured amazing personal images without being intrusive on the day at all. We are absolutely thrilled with our photos - it feels like we are reliving the day when we look through them as they really represent the emotion of the day. Ami is lovely, and she was quick to reply to all our messages and very accommodating. She made taking couple shots easy even though we are not naturally great in front of a camera - you will not regret choosing her to photograph your wedding or other event! Thanks again, Ami"
So here are the images….. Sarah & Paul thank you so much for having me photograph your special day!
